SA U19s in ‘good space’ ahead of Youth ODI Quadrangular series opener

South Africa under-19s batting coach, Siyabonga Sibiya, is happy that the team is in a good frame of mind and is focused on their task at hand as they prepare to take on India in the first match of the Youth One-Day International (ODI) Quadrangular series in Chatsworth on Friday. The four-team series also features New Zealand and Zimbabwe and will take place at the Chatsworth Oval and the Kingsmead Cricket Ground between 03-09 January. The teams involved will use these encounters to sharpen their skills before the ICC under-19 Cricket World Cup set to be hosted in South Africa, kicking off on the 17th of January. During the pre-match interview, Sibiya emphasized the importance of the team taking the confidence gained from the last game, where the SA U19s recorded a five-wicket victory over India in the third Youth ODI in East London, into this match. Following the first match on Friday, the SA U19s will take on New Zealand at the Chatsworth Oval on Sunday before ending off the round-robin stage against Zimbabwe on Tuesday at Kingsmead.
